"Before this autumn wind/ Even the shadows of mountains/ Shudder and tremble"-Issa
"When I went out/ In the spring meadows/ To gather violets, I enjoyed myself/ So much that I stayed all night" - Akahito
"The long, long river/ A single line/ On the snowy plain" - Boncho
"Gathering wild strawberries/ My humble treat" - Basho
"O autumn winds,/ Tell me where I'm bound, to which/particular hell" - Issa
